Now is your time to SHINE!
You’re an accomplished artist, designer, and creative industries professional. You certainly don’t need help or advice about the creative process or making your art.
But what about the rest of it?
If you’re serious about establishing yourself as a creative professional, it’s always hard keeping up with all the changes and pressures in today’s fast paced world. All that while trying to hold down a full time job in addition to working in, and operating, your art practice… all day… every day!
Could you take your art and design to an international art licensing trade show yourself?
Sure! Of course your could!
But how successful would you be on your own? Where would you start? How would you make the most of your investment (time AND money)?
Here’s your chance to connect with, and learn from, successful licensed artists and designers. As part of the ArtSHINE FIRST STEPS program you’ll begin to identify all the skills, experience, and support you need to take your creative practice to the next level.
Talk with us now and we’ll show you how ArtSHINE can work for you.
